Allen West has aired some really nasty advertisements, never truly discussing his record. For he is opposed to Social Security and other measures which make sense for “we the people,” but don’t make sense for the wealthy.
West rakes Patrick Murphy through the coals for an event in which Murphy was acquitted. Is Allen West so clean or is there something in HIS past in which justice was never done? Perhaps he never even came to trial – was given a break – and never had a trial to determine a conviction OR an acquittal. He forgets that his finger pointing is one finger at Patrick Murphy, while there are three pointing back at Allen West, as well as a thumb belligerently pointing at God. God is a loving GOD who does not condone violence.
Another observation. West’s wife proclaims “victimhood” of her husband, claiming racism against him. She is aloof and does not realize what is really going on. I have heard more people using the “N…..” word against the president of the USA, than I have against Allen West. People simply think of Allen West as a “nut job.” There are no aspersions being cast about the color of his skin. So WHO IS REALLY BRINGING UP THE RACIST ARGUMENT HERE? West and his wife are living in an ivory tower, away from the true people. And THIS is the reason NOT to vote for Allen West.
Yet another observation. In traveling through this new Congressional District 18, I have noticed huge signs for Allen West. In general, there are no signs with Allen West’s picture. But when I enter African-American areas, this is what I see: (1) signs with Allen West’s photo and (2) signs accusing Patrick Murphy of being a racist. Again, I ask: WHO IS STIRRING UP THE MUD WITH REGARD TO RACISM? Allen West or Patrick Murphy?
One more observation. I work the phone banks for Patrick Murphy. First of all, the people we call are either Democrats, Independents, or “no party affiliation.” When we encounter a person who supports Allen West, we are polite (even if we hear crazy people ranting and raving like violent beasts) and say, “Thank you for your time. Goodbye.” We don’t have registered Republicans on our lists (yet, based on Colin Powell’s recent comments about how that party, to which Powell still belongs, no longer has moderate people, perhaps we SHOULD be calling moderate Republicans). I have Democratic Party friends who have been called by the Republican Party. Apparently, the Republicans don’t care and use the Democratic Party lists! When my friends explain they are Democrats and support Patrick Murphy, there is no polite response. No, the Republicans hang up on them.
People on Facebook and other social media groups need to know this because the Media remains silent. What kind of last-minute vicious and deceptive ads and phone calling should voters expect in the next few days? Beware of the violent wolf and ask yourself, “is Allen West and Republicans – nasty people – really the ones we want representing us in Tallahassee and Washington?” Think about that. The Allen West billboard on the Florida Turnpike is one depicting a wolf in sheep’s clothing. He is a nasty, vicious person, and we don’t need such a person in Congress. And those who think we do, go form your own Hitler-type fascist nation – the fourth reich – elsewhere, but not here in America.
To Allen West and others: violence begets violence. If you don’t know what that means, then you are stubbornly ignorant and have not learned a thing from your experiences during your life.
Up to this point, I have been negative about a negative person. Perhaps I hope two negatives will produce a positive? That positive is Patrick Murphy.
Patrick Murphy has a positive plan with positive solutions. Being a small business person, he is more in tune with those who own small businesses, than with the wealthy corporate conglomerates who feed money into Allen West’s campaign. Patrick Murphy intends to protect Social Security and Medicare. Patrick Murphy has a positive plan for America.
